Samuel Leon Braunstein (born 1961) is a professor in the Computer Science department at the University of York, UK. He is a member of a research group in non-standard computation, and has a particular interest in quantum information and quantum computation.
Braunstein has written or edited three books and has published more than one hundred and thirty papers, which have been cited over twenty-four thousand times. His most important work was on quantum teleportation, and published in a paper titled Unconditional Quantum Teleportation. The paper has been cited more than three thousand times and has received significant coverage in both the scientific and mainstream press.
In February 2006, Braunstein made the news due to his involvement in the first successful demonstration of Quantum telecloning.
